This is a great step. Many Indians love Pakistani talent in food, clothes, Television, Music.

Now we will get to see Pakistani products as well.

Even though our relations will never improve, such small gestures can clear a few misconceptions

Or the economy has failed Pak rupees? . Japanese currency has been weaker than Pakistani currency. On the other hand, Nepali and Afghani currency is stronger. That doesn't mean a small economy like Nepal (only $10 Billion GDP) is better than Pakistani economy! . It what you are capable of making/quality etc. A weak currency can infact support you if you are POTENT enough!
